Now when the lost or damned are dimensional door into the seas of Carcosa the energy attracts these monsters who attack with deadly pincers & a deadly attitude. A bio acid attack that does 1d4 points of damage per round will damage those assault these deadly monsters.
They will attack anything be it boat, water craft, or rig. Sound attracts the monsters with little problem & they can smell the sweat of organic beings up to five miles.
The monsters have a weakness to high pitched sounds that will paralyse them or drive the monsters into a berserk fury. There is a 25 % chance of the monster attacking with its full bio acid attack if it feels threatened.
The monster may be attracted away from its victim by the smell of a fresh rotting carcass. They have little stomach for human beings & will attack them on sight.
After a ship wreck these bottom feeders will surface & eat anything organic that they come across. Even though they are scavengers these monsters act as an apex predator wherever they are found.
The monsters have been exported off planet & may be found in any large body of water on many worlds. The creatures have been exploited for their hides which make excellent armor & as parts for many space craft!
